** Mao’s father is the leader of a Yakuza crime family, so presumably doesn't have much time for her. He does send his goons after her when she tries to leave with Okamura, but that's likely because she stole money from him. Once they get out of Japan he doesn't seem to make any attempt to find her despite the fact that she's traveling the world with a man about twice her age.

Corrected some messed-up apostrophes.
** Saya and Diva’s biological mother [[spoiler:died long before they were born (they hatched out of cocoons found in her mummified corpse)]] and no information is given on their father, [[spoiler:though it’s probably safe to assume either Nathan is their father or he’s dead.]] They were adopted by the first Joel who [[spoiler: locked Diva in a tower and experimented on her while treating Saya like a princess. When Diva got out she killed him.]] Finally, Saya was adopted by Kai and Riku's stepfather George Miyagusuku in 2004, [[spoiler:only to be forced to kill him as he was turning into a chiropteran.]]

* In ''Anime/{{Charlotte}}'', Yu and Ayumi's mother divorced, then shoved them to their uncle's care. As a result he doesn't think too highly of her.

** In fact, the only character whose family is intact and pretty normal is [[RoseHairedGirl Kyoko.]]]] * While one won't see many parents in ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'''s AnimatedAdaptation, the novels actually refers to the cast's parents sometimes and implicitly remind of their existence. Wakatake is the sole exception; according to episode 6 his father is said to be working in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity and hence he is living with a housekeeper. ----

* Subversion: In the ''SakuraWars'' TV series, Sumire Kanzaki is estranged from her industrialist father and grandfather, who have been absorbed in work for seven years and apparently ignoring her completely, much to Sumire's chagrin; [[LonelyRichKid she has become convinced that they don't care about her.]] In the next-to-last episode, though, we learn it's been because they've dedicated themselves to building a superweapon for Sumire and the Teikokukagekidan all that time, and the father is actually a warm, friendly and loving person. He asks Sumire to forgive him before the last battle, and she does.

* In {{Claymore}}'s first episode, it is revealed that Raki's parents were eaten by a Youma possessing his brother's body. As for Clare, what exactly happened to her parents is unsure, but considering she was a Youma's [[{{Squick}} toy]] for a while, it would be safe to assume her parents were eaten as well. Priscilla's dad, like Raki's brother, was possessed by a Youma who ate her mother and elder brother.

* ''DeadmanWonderland'' features Ganta (orphaned in an [[TheTokyoFireball earthquake]]); Yo and Minatsuki Takami ([[spoiler:mom abandoned Minatsuki during the earthquake; Minatsuki killed her and much later set her dad up to be killed by her brother, probably out of sadistic boredom]]); and Shiro (no family to speak of other then being childhood friends with Ganta and his mom, and possibly The Director who [[spoiler:implants Deadman organs in her and wants her to kill him. She obliges]]).

* In ''PenguinRevolution'', Yukari's mother left her and her father when Yukari was young. Early in the first chapter of the series, Yukari's father sends her an email to tell her that his latest business venture has gone bust, he has to "lay low for a while," the lease on their apartment is up ''that day,'' and he's canceling both of their cell phone contracts so she won't be able to reach him even if she tries. Yukari is thus left to fend for herself at the age of sixteen. * In ''ViolinistOfHameln'', the theme of parental abandonment runs RAMPANT.

* A lot of boxers in ''HajimeNoIppo'' have missing parents. Ippo's fisherman [[DisappearedDad dad]] drowned at sea while rescuing others, so he only lives with his [[OpenMindedParent loving mother]] Hiroko. Miyata's [[MissingMom mom]] abandoned him when he was a child. Sendo's parents are both dead (mom died apparently in chilbirth, dad was a firefighter and perished in a huge fire), so he lives with his paternal grandmother. Takamura is from a wealthy family, but his parents disowned him when he was in high school, due to his violent nature. Mashiba was orphaned when he was in highschool and had to raise himself ''and'' his little sister Kumi. We never get to know what happened to Volg's father and his mother is an IllGirl who raised him alone [[spoiler: and dies some time in the series, after Volg has to return to Russia]]; for all matters, Ramuda is the closest to a father figure he has.

* Maron Kusakabe from ''KamikazeKaitouJeanne'' was turned into a BrokenBird because her parents often left her at home alone when she was little because of their jobs, which was apparently fairly traumatizing to the poor kid when she was left alone at night. Even when they were home, the anime at least implies that they fought a lot. Later, before Maron was even in grade school, they both left to work in other countries, and haven't contacted her since when the series begins. She now seems to have a deep-seated fear of being alone, especially at night, and cannot comprehend "love" because her parents weren't around to tell her about it. The only reasons Maron is in any way mentally stable when the series begins are Miyako's family, who live right across the hall and took care of her when she was little, and Finn, whose presence keeps Maron from being alone in the apartment.
